immer-package: Item Response Models for Multiple Ratings

Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Implements some item response models for multiple ratings, including the hierarchical rater model, conditional maximum likelihood estimation of linear logistic partial credit model and a wrapper function to the commercial FACETS program. See Robitzsch and Steinfeld (2018) for a description of the functionality of the package. See Wang, Su and Qiu (2014; <doi:10.1111/jedm.12045>) for an overview of modeling alternatives.
